Book excerpt: God Is Closer Than You Think Curriculum Kit Six Sessions on Experiencing the Presence of God The story of the Bible is the story of God's desire to be with people. God is extending himself, stretching out to reach us, to fill our lives with his presence. Every moment of your life is like a page in a Where's Waldo? book. God is there, the Scriptures tell us - on every one of them. But the ease with which he may be found varies from one page to the next. In this six-session Zondervan GroupwareTMvideo curriculum, award-winning author John Ortberg serves as guide and interpretive leader for experiencing the presence of God in everyday life. With his engaging and humorous style, Ortberg transforms our view of God's presence from one that may seem hidden or distant to one that is closer than you think. The curriculum kit is designed for churches to use as a spiritual growth campaign. It includes a six-session small group participant's guide, a six-session DVD (with a thirty-two - page leader's guide) featuring John Ortberg teaching, a CD-ROM (with sermon resources and promotional materials), and one copy of the hardcover book. The participant's guide, Small Group Edition DVD, and book are also sold separately.

Download or read Heaven is Closer than You Think PDF, written by Fred Blom and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2021-10-20 with total page 162 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a testimony of real life, not games or movies. The majority of the people in the world don't believe in the one and only God. Then there are fewer which believe in Jesus Christ. Of that group, how many drift in and out of this commitment? How many worship with their lips but not their hearts? My parents and relatives fell into the group of "there is no God, just nature and the natural renewal of its cycle." For me, curiosity was the thing. I had to know the beginning and end of everything step by step. It's the way I am built! I want every breath and every step I take to be closer to Jesus Christ. Walk with me, and we will see how close heaven really is to us. Run away with me, and I bet we will run right into the hand of God. I have done it a couple of times! I want you to come with me! Please, it's important! Why write this testimony of life? Did I say, "Please, come along with me"? Well, we all have the happy and sad, the hard and easy, and the close to God, whether we are aware of it or not, and the far from God, which we do not understand. Just a few weeks ago, I asked my Father in heaven if I should continue to write the first testimonials each month or perhaps even reveal the deep things which have helped me through life. In the process and time of seven days, I was shown how the hidden secrets of heaven work. To me it's funny, serious, and truthful--this simple thing connecting so many things together which have occurred in my life? I work on my testimonial stories at night. It was the hand of God that leads me to do that, no doubt, and you will learn that a little later. There are always more people to give them to than I can accomplish. "Maybe I should put them in a book for everyone, Father. I don't have time or know-how..." I felt like a tap in the back of my head when I prayed that. I slapped my hand over my mouth, trying to take it back; at the same time, I looked behind myself to see if something had fallen off the wall. I stopped praying, took a big sigh, and went to sleep. Why did I say "too busy"? I wrestled all night with, "The secrets of heaven are my Lord Jesus Christ's, but that which he gives us are ours." For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. (Luke 12:2) I was referred to recently as the little lion which would not roar and the lost generation. Then a voice stood up for me and said, "No, this is the one who walks the dusty road." I wanted to respond, but I fell to the ground in weakness because of the awesomeness around me. I was shown the loss of mankind and told to go forth with the testimony I was given. I cry and pray with great supplication before the heavenly throne of our savior, Jesus Christ. I don't want anyone to be lost! Love in Christ, Fred

I don't want anyone to be lost! Even though I have learned many things and seen many things, the ultimate purpose is the salvation of the soul. Many things are wonderful and thrilling and most assuredly can be beyond ones metal capability. A pillar of light revealed one night and the protection from 220 volts the next day. Falling down a 100 foot silo chute and being caught in mid-air, revealing of the Holy Spirit to change on lookers hearts in an instant. Even close deaths being miraculously healed by the Holy Spirit. This has brought about dozens of hearts and souls with life changing results. The value of a soul may seem difficult to understand, but it isn't hard at all. The angles in heaven give ultimate joy and praise to the King of glory for the salvation of just one soul. The creation of people shall come to an end and judgment shall fall. The number of saved souls shall be small in number, compared to those that lived. You may think a body is marvelous, but the soul is a 1000 times 10,000 times more magnificent. Capabilities and wonders that stagger the mind! Even I have taken the soul for granite and continually fights the good fight. The most important thing in life is the salvation of your soul. Fred wants you to fight for it! Love in Christ, Fred

Book I d Like You More If You Were More like Me

Download or read I d Like You More If You Were More like Me PDF, written by John Ortberg and published by NavPress. This book was released on 2017-10-03 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I’d Like You More If You Were More like Me takes on one of life’s most important questions: How can I get closer to God and other people? We were created for deep connections. When people have deep connections, says John Ortberg, they win in life. When they don’t have deep connections, they cannot win in life. I’d Like You More if You Were More like Me offers help in overcoming one of the biggest obstacles to making deep connections: the fact that we’re so different. Different from God and different from each other. The good news is that connectedness is not based on similarity, but on shared experiences. When one person invites another to share an experience, they’re connected. It can be sharing a beautiful sunset or a meal, having a great conversation over cup of coffee, going for walk, or even teasing somebody. And when we share those same experiences with God, we get closer to him, too. God wants to connect with us—so much that he sent his son to live as a human being. God took on flesh and shared every human experience. So we don’t have to wonder what a close relationship with God looks like anymore. An intimate relationship with God and other people doesn’t have to be a cliché, it can be a daily way of life.

Book More about the Kingdom of God

Download or read More about the Kingdom of God PDF, written by John H. Shafer and published by . This book was released on 2017-07-11 with total page 104 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: More about the Kingdom of God is a book the whole church can read and study. Whether as an individual study or discussing in an Adult Bible Class or a Life Group, students will find using this book an exciting and insightful way to learn and understand more about the Kingdom of God. For about two thousand years, many Christians have read about the Kingdom of God in New Testament scripture and never really understood its meaning or relevance to their daily lives as believers. Not only this, but the fact that the phrase "Kingdom of God" is not found in Old Testament scriptures would, in itself, raise some curiosity about why it is found readily within the New Testament. One would think the spoken words of Jesus on this subject, which were written down, would be easily interpreted and followed. None of that holds true with the subject of the Kingdom of God. John Shafer says, "The riches and nearness of the Kingdom of God are closer than you think. If you want to know more, this study will help you find it. Living in the Kingdom is not something that is only to be enjoyed when one goes to heaven. When you find it, nothing will be more important and living in it will become your ultimate joy. You will learn during this study that the Kingdom of God involves two great moments: fulfillment within history (already in the form of Jesus) and consummation at the end of history (not yet). Living in the Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit."
